Carry On... Up the Khyber 1968 PG

88 mins United Kingdom Director. Gerald Thomas

British India is the setting for one of the most highly regarded entries in the long-running comedy series. Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond (Carry On regular Sidney James) is doing his best to protect the British outpost near the Khyber Pass – but complications ensue when the Khazi of Kalabar has his eyes set on carnage. One of the crew’s most enduring romps, Carry On… Up the Khyber is a biting and irreverent jaunt with a steady stream of great gags.
